The Promise of Oregon One Day Divorce Approach

A Better Process

In Oregon, getting a divorce typically takes nine months or longer, if not years. At One Day Divorce Mediation, we are all too aware of how this slow and frustrating process can cause hardship for parents and families. We knew we could do better.

Creativity in legal thought and practice is a driving force behind the success of our One Day Divorce and Mediation program. Our law firm’s innovative divorce approach means that your divorce will be completed in months at a set cost – not years costing tens of thousands of dollars.

Our unique divorce approach combines mediation and binding arbitration to facilitate a fair and efficient resolution of differences with your spouse. Our approach also gives couples the best chance to retain control over what their post-marriage relationship will look like, since they are making all of the decisions.

On items where the couple cannot agree, at the end of the mediation and after having spent several hours talking to both parties, the mediator will decide the unresolved differences in accordance with Oregon law, the same way a judge would. The mediator will apply Oregon law in making final decisions regarding property, income, and parenting.

One Day Divorce Mediation is also innovative in other respects. We have pioneered gathering client information online. There’s no need to fill out endless paper forms and send them to your attorney. Instead, parties can answer questions online. Responses are then safely and confidentially transmitted directly to our office.

In addition to avoiding reams of paper, going to court for interim support, sitting through depositions, being ordered to mediation, and then sitting in an uneasy courtroom across from your spouse all day, our One Day Divorce Mediation arbitrations are conducted by secure Zoom video conference. There is no need to be in the same room as your spouse. (We can however make accommodations when online video conferencing is not practical or possible.)

One Day Divorce and Mediation’s innovative approach offers its clients numerous advantages over traditional divorce firms.

  • Our seven-step divorce process saves clients time when compared to a traditional divorce.
  • The divorce will be completed on the day you and your spouse agree, not the court’s schedule.
  • The divorce will be finished in months, not a year or longer.

One Day Divorce Fees: How Much One Day Divorce Cost?

One Day Divorce and Mediation offers a simple fee structure that saves you money. All charges are set forth at the commencement of the professional relationship, eliminating any confusion or surprises. Most importantly, whereas each party in a divorce retains its own lawyers, One Day Divorce and Mediation is mediation not advocacy – resulting in a significant savings.

One Day Divorce and Mediation’s fee structure is easy to explain and is based upon the complexity of the case. We charge a divorcing couple a basic fee of $3,000 plus the following:

If there are children $1,500
Each additional minor child $250
Each “Child Attending School” $500
Residential Real Estate $2,000/per
Individual Retirement Accounts (not subject to QDRO) $1,000/per
Employee Retirement accounts (subject to QDRO) $2,500/per
If the value of the estate is between $500,000 and $749,999, add $3,500
If the value of the estate is between $750,000 and $1,000,000, add $4,500

The Oregon One Day Divorce Approach is a Mediation Binding Arbitration, not litigation. Therefore, fees are per couple, not per person. You will save thousands, know in advance how much it will cost, and not be subject to thousands of dollars in costs which cannot be anticipated in the future.
